Moscow

Museum of Wooden Architecture

22 Mar 2019
Containing about twenty reconstructed wooden buildings, including a windmill, taken from the local area and dating back between 200 and 300 years, this 'living museum' tries to help you imagine more what life was like for the average Russian peasant. Although you can actually only go inside three of the houses as well as the old wooden church, there are plenty of skilled museum staff in traditional costume offering demonstrations of how weaving looms worked or what the living quarters of an old country merchant were like. More hands on exhibits include the craftsmen making pottery and weaving bark into baskets and the group of musicians playing old Russian folk songs on ancient Russian stringed instruments.
